Fishing Reports

Wednesday, February 25, 2015


Hello from Big Winnie. The walleye and pike seasons are now closed. Time to go pan fishing. The perch bite on Winnie is getting better toward the west side. Look to the snag hole area to the river mouth. 12 to 30 feet of water. The Sugar Island area north to the Raven rocks is good. The weather is making them move from the 8 to 12 foot out to the 12 to 20 foot. Sometimes in the same day. Find them and they will readily bite. North areas to look for are the saddle off high banks and the Tamarac bay in 12 to 18 feet. Sunnies are going in Big and Little cutfoot . Early and late in the day is best. Crappie action in cutfoot also has been good though smaller fish at this time. Several smaller lakes near by have had some good crappie action also. See you on the lake Pat.

Perch reports have slowed, but fish continue to be caught off the west side points and breaks or on the south end along the shorelines as shallow as 8 feet out to 22 to 34 feet on main lake structure and breaks. The deep breaks, 20 to 30 feet, are giving up walleyes in low-light, and northern pike remain active throughout the lake in 10 to 22 feet.

Hello from Big Winni. The ice is growing rapidly we are between 14 and 15 1/2 inches of ice and no snow. Fishing has been good. Perch are caught in bigger numbers but they have to be sorted. Shore drops have be working best, such as Moxeys, the stumpfield on the southeast corner, snaghole, or sugar on the west side. Walleye action has been good on the main lake, bars, and humps. Work 15 to 25 ft of water. Pike are on fire. If you are tip up fishing, fish the top section of all the break lines and 3 ft off the bottom. Pan-fish have been good early and late in the day. Big and little cut foot and third river, 7-9 ft of water. ATV travel on the entire lake. Light truck travel out of some resorts. Call ahead to where ever you are going before going out on the lake. 

Just a reminder the ice is very slippery because of very little snow, so be careful and use ice cleats if possible. Be safe and see ya on the lake!
